AC Sapphire

Portland artist AC Sapphire returns with the decadent new album Dec. 32nd, songs from a cycle that honors Sapphire at her best: guitar, and vocals front and center; celebrations of the songwriter, the shredder, that she is. Sapphire sits serenely among the songwriting class that is our generation's Laurel Canyon sound. AC's music has a grasp on the cosmic side of Americana. She resides in Portland, but was once a desert denizen, and her southwestern exposure shows in the wide open, dusty, romantic sound of each song. She's the winner of Relix Sonic Showdown, a finalist in the John Lennon songwriting contest. She's shared the stage with artists like Son Little, long time friend Sunny War, and even been featured on a Shirley Manson (Garbage) song. AC has played Philadelphia Folk Festival, Treefort Music Fest. Even as this album is being released, she's finishing recording another with New Song Music as the winner of their 2022 contest.

Sapphire makes a meta-modern version of Americana. Honoring the cross of hippies and cowboys that began the genre, embroidering thoughtful songwriting with cosmic consideration, emotional rock n roll, and western vista inspired folk rock. She’s capable of eviscerating emotions with harmonies and heated hard hitting love songs. Sapphire mines the same golden, glowing vein of Courtney Marie Andrews, Kassi Valazza, Madison Cunningham, or Mikaela Davis. She's a multi-instrumentalist and composer whose songs take the earnest torch of cosmic country and carry it forward, blazing a trail through a jaded, junk-future. Sapphire sings whole-heartedly, and makes cover-to-cover albums fit for Long Play listening, sitting and smoking, soul searching, desert dazing.


Weezy Ford

Weezy Ford is a musician and songwriter living in the Columbia River Gorge. Her first musical endeavors incorporated slide guitar, vintage feels, garage-rock fuzz, and tap dancing on her EP Bobbypin Graveyard. She got tired of carrying around a box to dance on, and began writing songs on a tiny synthesizer that would eventually become her first full-length record titled Sugarcane in 2019. She collaborates with her partner, Mark Robertson (multi-instrumentalist, engineer) in their homestead studio where they mostly grow vegetables and record with homemade equipment where none of the knobs are labeled. During the pandemic they recorded a handful of acoustic songs onto tape released as All At Once. She started a twangy side project with her sister, Sallie Ford, called The Barbaras. They recorded Oh My God Barbara in 2020 on Orcas Island, WA. 
 
Her latest album In the Movement will be released on March 10th at Mississippi Studios. It features a wide range of classic guitar riffs from Mitch Gonzales (Mitch and the Melody Makers), Jeff Munger (Floating Easements), and Galen Ballinger. Alongside drummer Kyle Hartelt and pedal steel player James Greenan, the new album offers a sonic continuation of previous works weaving nostalgia into modern rock’n’roll.
